Summary

When a group of researchers asked young adults around the globe what their number one priority was in life, the top answer was happiness. Not success, fame, money, looks or love...but happiness. For a rising generation of young people raised as digital natives in a fast-paced, ultra-connected world, authentic happiness still seems just out of reach. While social media often shows well-lit selfies and flawless digital personas, today's 16- to 25-year-olds are struggling to find real meaning, connection, and satisfaction right alongside their overburdened parents. 

When Likes Aren't Enough tackles the ever-popular subject of happiness and well-being but reframes it for a younger listener struggling with Instagram envy and exam pressures, university and job rejections and overprotective parents. Professor of positive psychology Dr Tim Bono distils his students' most popular course on the science of happiness into creative, often counterintuitive strategies for millennials and future generations to lead happier, more fulfilling lives. 

Filled with exciting research, practical exercises, honest advice and quotes from young adults themselves, When Likes Aren't Enough is a master class for a generation looking for science-based, real-world coping methods to feel just a little bit happier every day.
